. Fly Fisherman did bother the spawning fish today on April 30 and last Friday. You can see the fish there and they have no interest in feeding. Their second offense was fishing off the Handicap dock. They were all over the place. The guys last week were older and held on to the dock for standing support,maybe they had a need. Lots of small fish biting. A few hard hits from large fish today but no greatfishing.

I tell ya, fishing the Laramie plains lakes on Wednesday made me feel like I was in a multimillion person state!

It's like the old story of a traveling man who stopped at a shop on the edge of town. He struck up a conversation with the owner and asked, "What kind of people live here?" The owner asked, "What type of people live where you hail from?"

"Thieves and conmen mostly," was the reply.

"That's what you'll find here, too," commented the shop owner.

Simply, no matter where you go, you will see and find both good and bad. It's rare I don't fish a water, especially popular waters, and see someone "stretching" the rules. This is true across the country.

Best you can do is either address the issue directly, dangerous, but often gets quick results in they move on, or call the authorities, which is my recommendation. Or simply ignore it and go about your business, but that, like complaining, isn't a solution in my opinion.
